Throw a Downton Abbey Gala…Grantham Style: The “Lady Mary”

By: Amy Atlas, in Amy's Latest, Recipes

The Season 3 premiere of Downton Abbey is this Saturday and we can’t wait. We did a segment for E! News last week and we had to do some “research” for the segment. We created this fun cocktail called the Lady Mary, which would be perfect for a Downton Abbey viewing party.  We substituted Vodka for Gin in the Traditional Bloody Mary.  The Gin has a little kick to it, just like the character Lady Mary.  If you are thinking of throwing a Downton Abbey premiere party, this is a really fun cocktail idea!  Scroll down for the recipe…
